I’m not usually a massive fan of trying new things, although I definitely think I’ve improved in the last few years. For example, when I was a kid I refused to eat cheese or any new food. Plain and simple for me! Now I’m trying sushi (to be fair it was chicken and duck rather than raw fish…still counts) and I eat cheese quite a lot now. How can any of this be life changing I hear you ask…well trying new food probably isn’t, but trying a new hobby or a new method of doing something could have brilliant consequences!
A lot of the time, my confidence issues hold me back from trying new things that could potentially save me time and money but could also turn out to be something I love. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or because I’ve simply decided I don’t care as much anymore but I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone a little more. I’ve been talking to people about sales on the phone (big deal for me!), I attended a wedding fair where I had to talk extensively about my products, I’m involved in setting up a new potentially huge company, AND perhaps the biggest of all, I finally went swimming!
Yep that’s another thing to tick off my new year goals! I used to go swimming ALL THE TIME but I hadn’t been for a few years and I was quite a bit bigger than when I last went. But I ignored my flab and got in the pool as quickly as possible…then my only problem was trying not to drown halfway across the pool because I’m so unfit and out of practice! But hey, I’ve rediscovered my love of swimming and love of water. Now the next one to tick off is scuba diving 😉
P.S. I’m trying out something else right now by blogging on my mobile. Being the design freak that I am, it makes me a bit itchy that I can’t see the layout as clearly as I would on my laptop that I usually use to blog but we’ll soon see if it makes any difference! Let me know what you think. Hopefully if all goes well I’ll be blogging on the move or writing a quick post between work!
